    Is this a new issue that the live preview (or whatever you call the small video window in the top corner of the menus) will show things that it shouldn't when Parental Controls are enabled?

    My 3rd grader figured it out this morning to watch a show we had recorded for the kids but apparently wasn't allowed by the ratings. So the kids just watched it in the small box! Thank goodness that's all they watched.

    I'm missing Kids Zone more and more...

    Anyone? Is this old news? Or does nobody else use Parental Controls?

    Try turning off the preview window, do they know how to put it back on?

    I did that already as a workaround. I don't think they can re-enable it without the code.

    I guess it's a bug and we'll do without the Live Window. I hope Tivo fixes it though.

    I don't use parental controls or the preview window but how did they get the window to display their show? Can you describe the behavior?
